Falls City 49
Three Rivers 6
THREE RIVERS -- Beaver Nation is as excited as ever this year, as the Falls City football team continues to roll over the competition en route to what will hopefully be another state title.
Last Friday, the Beavers traveled down to Three Rivers to take on the Bulldogs in one of two final non-district games. Falls City was coming off a big 52-0 win in D’Hanis, and was looking to continue its momentum. The Beavers did just that, and ran their way to a 49-6 victory over the Bulldogs.
With the ability to both run and pass the ball efficiently, the Beavers have been able to adjust to and exploit opposing defenses all season, and it was no different against Three Rivers. Falls City ran for a total of 314 yards and five touchdowns last Friday evening, while also throwing for 137 yards and two more touchdowns.
Starting quarterback Dean Gaskamp connected on 4 of 6 passing attempts for 52 yards, before Justin Twine and Zach Jimerson took snaps under center. In secondary roles, Twine and Jimerson were perfect passing the ball. Twine completed 2 of 2 passes for 50 yards and a touchdown, while Jimerson completed 4 of 4 passes for 35 yards and a touchdown. Gaskamp was actually the team’s leading receiver on the night in his secondary role at that position, catching two passes for 50 yards and a touchdown, including a 40-yard strike from Twine. Austen Camber and Cody Houdman each had 23 yards in receptions, and Matthew Hons caught two passes for 20 yards and a touchdown. In total, seven different players caught passes for Falls City.
On the ground, seven was again the magic number, as seven different players gained positive yardage with the ball in their hands. Twine led the team with 133 yards and two touchdowns on six carries, including one that was good from 71 yards away. Kendall Kanak scored a touchdown of 55 yards on his one carry, while David Brodsky and Gaskamp each ran for 45 paces and a touchdown. Jimerson had one run of 23 yards.
Scoring points is great, but being able to stop the other team from doing the same is just as important. When it came to defense, Falls City was at the top of its game. A total of 18 different Beavers contributed to 101 total tackles on the night. Senior Eric Wiatrek led the team with 16 on the night, including 10 solo tackles. Stephen Harlos and Tyler Malcolm each tallied 11 tackles on the night, while Mitch Lyssy was good for another 10 .
The victory keeps Falls City perfect on the season, as the team now sports a 5-0 record. The Beavers will celebrate Homecoming this Friday, as Charlotte swings through town. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Beaver Stadium.
